Currituck County Wills
In the name of God, Amen. The 9th day of May 1817. I William WILLIAMS of Kinnekeet Banks, the County of Currituck being very sick of body, being in perfect mind and memory, thanks be it to the Almighty God for it, and calling to mind the mortality of my body, that it is appointed for all men one to die, and I do therefore put my Last Will and Testament in writing therefore and first of all, I give and recommend my soul into the hands of the Almighty God that gave it, and for my body I commmand unto the earth to be buried in a christian like manner, at the discretion of my Executors, nothing doubting but at the general resurrection I shall receive the same.
First of my desire is that all my lawful debts to be paid, and as touching of my worldy estate, I give as in money and form following. I give and bequeath unto my three Sons Caleb, Humphries and Jeremiah all the land I possess, and all improvements, to be equally divided among them. I leave my boat to be sold and my horse and cattle. I leave all the remainder of my property to be sold in doors and out doors, after paying my debts. I leave all the remains of the money for the support, for raising my Daughter Sarah DAY. I do hereby appoint Pharroh FARROW to be my whole and lawful Executor and do hereby acknowledge this to be my Last Will and Testament, and make void and disannul all others. Whomsoever shall oppose it. As witness my hand and seal.
